Tablets Smoke varroosis in bees
Amitraz - 12,5 mg
Thymol – 4,5 mg
Hold a tablet with the tongs and set it on fire, blowing off any possibly emerging flame. Place the smouldering tablet on a narrow (3-4 cm) strip of thick metal netting or specially bent wire feeder, enabling access of air to the tablet. Introduce the smouldering tablet together with the netting into the hive through the entrance, and place it on the bottom board beneath the frames. Cover the entrance for 20 minutes. Next, uncover the entrance and check if the tablet has burnt completely. If not, repeat the procedure. While diagnosing varroosis, adhere to the above procedure, after placing a sheet of paper covered with vegetable fat at the bottom board. Remove the sheet of paper and check for presence of the mites on it an hour after fumigation.
